Anyone Growing Avocado's in Lafayette LA Area?
I live in Abbeville, about 20 miles or so South of Lafayette. I have read all the info I could find on growing Avocado's and most of what I've found says it grows in Zone 9b to 11.
However, since I am on the Northern end of the Zone spectrum I'd like to have a second opinion from someone who is actually growing Avocado's here successfully.
I have an insatiable passion for fresh ripe Avocado's quartered with a sprinkling of salt. If I could grow a tree then I'd have them for free for at least a portion of the year!!! Especially if I could grow a dwarf variety or one that I can keep in a container to maintain its size.
